Day 4:  How Making Manly Angels Can Be A Kindness

            You see it is very important, if you are a young man who has been commandeered into the "Angel Band" at your upcoming youth night play, that you look dignified, powerful and......manly.  :-)   That was my promise to two of the fellows playing angels next Sunday night.   One of the youth teachers and several of the teenagers have written a play attempting to portray "The Marriage Supper of the Lamb".

             And so, on a very limited budget I am trying to costume (1) The Heavenly Father (quite the task) (2) A heralding angel, with the trumpet of God (3) The Bridegroom, Jesus Christ the Lamb of God, (4) The Bride (beautiful, beautiful)  (5) Two angels, played by girls, who don't mind at all looking lovely, shiny, and ethereal, (6) Two angels, played by younger aged boys, who don't care what I dress them in and (7) Two angels, played by older teen boys, who most decidedly, Do!!

              There's no getting around the "flounce" of the shiny fabric. :-)  However, I hope, by adding metal, weapons and a handcrafted mask, the movement of the cloth won't be as noticeable, and the fellas with feel kindly treated and free to play their dignified, powerful, manly roles...:-)    My son said he admired me for my hard work :-) :-).   I told him it was a pleasure.  :-)  If my children don't admire me, even if everyone else does, then I have failed in that critical point.  I want my babies to admire everyone who deserves it, but I must find a way to head that list.   I must pursue kindness.  I must chase after this aspect of the Heavenly Father,  for it was in His kindness that he sent to this world His......only...begotten...Son.

Day 3: ,  Hit the ground running this morning, but was I kind? Can you rush past people in your house, saying time to do this, go there, get that, hurryhurrynow, oh gracious!! we gotta go, go, go, and not be mean...... but still,.... was I kind?    "In loving kindness Jesus came, my soul in mercy to reclaim and from the depths of sin and shame, by grace, he lifted me." That is a line from my Daddy's favorite song.  I would say my Daddy was a very, very kind man. He was also a Korean War Veteran(master seargeant/infantry for 22 months w/honorable discharge in Sept. 1952). When I was a little girl Daddy said once, "Korean children are so very beautiful"..:-)  How do you draw a child to your side?  With Kindness.  Kindness is the essence of Love.  I can do kindnesses and not really love, but I cannot really love without doing kindnesses.
   the Korean word for kindness.  :-)

Day 1:   Not sure if I can do this...:-) Today is one month since my my Darling Girl arrived in Korea.  I was able to stop crying (With the Good Lord's Help) around day five......:-) Her blog postings each Day have helped so much.  Maybe these blog postings with help a little more.  You can always use a little more help...:-) It's very late here, fourteen hours behind the sun from Korea.  I'm glad east and west never meet for two reasons.....Sins forgiven and removed.......and I'm always in a dance to catch the Korean sun. Saranghae (I love you) is my first Korean word :-).  When all else fails, saranghae never will.
